Misuse of law alleged

A convention of the Janamithram Janakeeya Neethi Vedi held here on Sunday expressed concern over the misuse of the provisions in the Domestic Violence Act.

It was being used as a tool to torture innocent men and their family members, speakers at the convention said.

The convention said the family courts mostly attested the version of lawyers without looking into the real facts. Right to Information Development Committee chairman A.M. Varghese, who inaugurated the convention, said family relationship and bondage were being misused by many women. Mutual understanding and loyalty were gradually disappearing.

Mr. Varghese said section 498 (A) of the IPC was now a powerful tool in the hands of many women.

James W. Hunt, member, International Human Rights Organisation, spoke.
